The Liberty Grove and Sister Bay Boards have authorized a cooperative venture to increase recycling and protect the environment.
All residents, business owners or operators, and owners of property in the Village of Sister Bay and the Town of Liberty Grove are encouraged to participate in a Shredding/Appliance Recycling Day on Saturday, October 20, 2012. (Due to overwhelming response in the past, persons from other municipalities will not be allowed to participate.) There will be no charge to have documents securely shredded or to recycle most computer components and small household appliances, but fees of up to $15 could be charged to recycle refrigerators, computer monitors, microwaves, air conditioners and the like. All shredded materials and appliances will be recycled.
-Any documents to be shredded as well as any appliances or computer components to be recycled should be brought to the parking lot at the Liberty Grove Town Hall - 11161 Old Stage Road between 9:00 A.M. and 1:00 P.M. on October 20, 2012. Before large items will be placed on the truck any and all recycling fees must be paid.
Properly disposing of materials that contain personal information is one of the best ways to guard against identity theft. Documents to be shredded may include old bank statements and other papers listing bank account information, credit card statements and documents listing credit card numbers, credit applications, pre-approved credit offers, old pay stubs, old utility bills, old tax records, and any and all other outdated records which contain Social Security, Employer I.D. or Driver’s License numbers.
Small household appliances as well as large appliances like refrigerators, stoves, freezers, washers and dryers can all be easily recycled. Other appliances that can be recycled include microwaves, garbage disposals, dishwashers, and air conditioners. Much like appliances, in most cases electronics and computer components can also be recycled. Computer monitors contain harmful elements like mercury, lead, cadmium, and other substances that can be extremely harmful if they are disposed of improperly. Stereos, old copiers, fax machines and even broken or no longer used cell phones are also recyclable. It’s always best to try to recycle electronics so that they do not sit in a landfill or cause any other environmental problems.
If you have any questions regarding either of these events please contact the employees in the Administration Office at 920-854-4118 or the employees at the Town Hall at 920-854-2934.
